Scenes! Nani received brilliant welcome from Sporting fans after Man United loan move
One might have imagined that Nani would have been a bit disappointed to return to Sporting Lisbon.
After all, this loan move confirms that Nani has undoubtedly failed at Manchester United under a succession of manager, when his early career at Old Trafford showed so much promise.
The reception from Sporting fans at the airport must have cheered Nani up no end.
For Sporting this is a massive signing – they could not have possibly expected to get a former player back, who at 27 is theoretically in the prime of his career.
And, the Sporting fans made it clear just how delighted they were when Nani walked out of Departures at the airport in Lisbon.
Now, if Nani can produce some fine performances for Sporting, he may well justify the fact Manchester United are subsidising his full wages in Portugal.
